Nova Scotia has always needed Bluenose as a symbol of a culture of enterprise and self-sufficiency, and as a monument to the heroic and often tragic Grand Banks fishing past. And so it was with great fanfare that on a misty September Saturday in 2012, the "restored" new hull of Bluenose II inched safely and slowly into a friendly Lunenburg harbour. As the water rose over the massive rolling platform that carried her down, she gradually came afloat for the first time, fair on her lines, high and proud. Nova Scotia now has a virtually new Bluenose, fashioned as closely to the genetic code of Bluenose II as possible, just as Bluenose II replicated the original, everywhere except below decks. Forever Bluenose charts the storied history of Nova Scotia's famous schooner--its fishing and racing days in the early twentieth century, its rebirth, first as a promoter of beer and later as a tourist attraction, as the Bluenose II, and its careful restoration in the twenty-first century. Includes over 50 photographs of the restoration process as well as the vessel's commercial and racing heyday.
